Aurora Youth Options was thrilled to support our DSST High School Intern, Dago, at his Exhibition of Learning school event last night. Dago brought a fresh perspective and a youth's voice to the AYO team during his internship experience. He focused on learning the skills needed to thrive in an office setting, how to offer great customer service skills, as well as offering tutoring services to AYO's middle and high school students every Wednesday evening. The entire team was grateful to have met Dago and he will be dearly missed in the office.

AYO would like to say THANK YOU to the Community College of Aurora and coollivin.com for donating tickets to Marvel’s “Black Panther” movie! Not only were matches able to spend quality time together for this outing but youth were able to witness a major black comic book character come to life on the big screen!
